Voice of Travelers to Bora Bora

A Weekend With My Boyfriend in Bora Bora

I had been to Bora Bora once before on tickets with some of my friends, and I really needed a vacation there again to help me relax. This time I decided to buy tickets for my boyfriend and I to go there together so that we could have a romantic weekend in Bora Bora. I bought us two tickets on Air Tahiti for the final stretch from Tahiti to Bora Bora. I love the small planes because they are so roomy and quiet, and you get a lot of attention from the staff that you do not get on a bigger plane. On Bora Bora I spent most of my time on the beach while my boyfriend was snorkeling and scuba diving. We did take a short boat tour out to see manta rays and sharks, which was very cool.

A Tropical Getaway in Bora Bora

I keep a picture of a tropical island on my desk at work to help me relax and remind me what I am working for, so I was happy to have the opportunity to book a full week for buying tickets for a trip to Bora Bora. I decided to take my parents with me because they cannot afford nice vacations, so I figured two tickets for Bora Bora would be a treat for them. We got tickets with Air France for the first part of the trip to Bora Bora. My parents were obviously nervous about flying, so the staff made sure that they felt safe and kept them busy with food and movies. On Bora Bora we rented a hut on stilts over the water, which really impressed my parents. Then we bought tour tickets to see the old World War 2 guns on Bora Bora.

Tickets for an Exclusive Island Resort on Bora Bora

I entered a contest at my local grocery store and ended up winning tickets for a full vacation at an exclusive resort in Bora Bora. Bora Bora has small surrounding islands that host some of the most luxurious resorts in the world. The tickets for the first part of the trip to Bora Bora were with American Airlines and they were first class tickets. I had never flown on first class tickets before, so all the excellent service and food on the plane was a real treat. The resort in Bora Bora was world class, and our package included boat tour tickets around the islands of Bora Bora. Winning those tickets for Bora Bora was one of the best events of my life.
